Kidero – Grass must grow
Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero has told off critics of ‘Kidero grass’ saying that the grass was not meant for US President Barack Obama’s visit but was a long-term plan.
The governor said this during the Power Breakfast show on Citizen TV this morning while responding to a question by Willis Raburu on whether he expects the grass to be ready by the time the US president arrives.
The Nairobi governor, while referring to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s joke about the grass, said that the president expressed hope that the grass would be ready soon.
“He used ‘shall’, not ‘will’ which means it must happen, the grass must grow,” quipped Kidero.
The hash tag #KideroGrass topped the trends on Tuesday as Kenyans on Twitter made fun of the county’s last minute efforts to spruce up the city.
On Friday, there were reports that the City Hall was being repainted just hours before the US president’s plane touched down.
